Bottle. Amber. Malt forward with a rye spice on the back end and a nice dry finish. Biscuit, bread, caramel malts. Good stuff.

Not a bad lager. Very light, neutral aroma that reminds me of some of the big American brewers. Taste is complex with hints of earth, bread and, yes, I get the cherry. Finish is long, with just a hint of metal.

From a bottle. Pours a copper/amber, tiny head, malty aroma with a hint of Vegemite, touch of hops to balance the rich smooth malt flavours. A very, very good beer.

Bottle from Total Wine. Beautiful red-orange pour with a white head that doesn't last long. Well balanced with lots of flavors -- malt, dark cherry, and some nice spice from the rye. Easy to drink. Very good.

12oz bottle. Pours a murky amber color with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and a crisp finish. Sweet with some spiciness and some chocolate notes in the finish. I enjoy Marzens and I think this is a particularly good one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Lost Lake. Pours a crystalline dark gold. Crisp lager nose with cereal, woody hops and a hint of spicy rye. I love how well the subtle rye comes through in this lighter bodied beer. Flavor is balanced, crisp malts. Notes of cereal and fresh corn with a modest hop bite and timid, but rewarding rye notes. The finish is ever so slightly "off" but the lines here at this music dive are likely suspect. I enjoyed this enough to try it again from some fresh bottles or from the brewery.
